      So how do I get a chance at winning this new Truck?  It is as simple as visiting the Jacked Up Giveaways website and making a Donation.  The drawing for this Grand Prize will be held on December 16, 2014, so it gives you plenty of time to purchase as many chances as you like over the course of the next 6 months.  The Official Rules of this event are listed at the bottom of the Donate To Enter page.  Donations start as low as 2 Tickets for $20.00.

      From the office of Liz Shuler, Secretary-Treasurer AFL-CIO

      In your key roles as leaders of our important State Feds and CLCs, you know better than anyone that buying union-made products and services is a great way to stand in unity with our brothers and sisters. Thankfully, there is a clear option to do just that in the often crowded world of mobile carriers. With 45,000 workersrepresented by the Communications Workers of America, AT&T is the only national unionized wireless provider and is the clear choice for union members, their families and for the union staff working to promote their interests.
       
      In an effort to ensure that AT&T is the clear union choice for telecommunications services, CWA facilitated negotiations with AT&T, the AFL-CIO, and Union Plus to provide discounted wireless service for union offices, union staff, and most importantly, valued union members. In addition, through negotiated discounts with the AFL-CIO, AT&T also offers significant savings on local and long-distance, internet, video and web conferencing and other communications technology services for national, regional and local union offices.

      The Delegates at the 50th IAFF Convention passed Resolution #23 "Our Good Name" which applies to the use of the IAFF Logo.

      This resolution condemns the act of ordering or applying this union’s good name in the form of the IAFF Logo, the letters IAFF or the words “International Association of Fire Fighters” to any piece of apparel or merchandise that is not UNION made, or is made outside of the United States of America or Canada.

      Union Shop Apparel is one of the only organizations within North America that fully complies with Resolution #23.  All of the employees at Union Shop Apparel are members of IUPAT Local 820.  We invite you to visit their website and checkout their new Online Store.  They specialize in Custom Embroidery and Silk Screening.

      This video is from the IAFFTV Library and features the Community Paramedic Workshop that was given at the Redmond Symposium 2013.
